“In the wee small hours of the morning, when the whole wide world is fast asleep…”
It is one of my favorite old songs, and one of the most beautiful times of the day. A time of uncluttered honesty when the soul speaks to us, something to be treasured and never rushed.
Before you open your eyes and begin thinking of all the things you have to do today, allow yourself to listen to what is really important to your true self, the one you might have forgotten. This tiny window of time is precious.
Do you feel sick and need to nurture yourself? Is something bothering you that happened at work? Does the memory of something good that happened to you wash over you? An idea that you feel excited about gets your heart pumping…before the voices say anything to squash it. Is there something you need to say to someone?
The morning is an ideal time to listen to ourselves. Our defenses are down, we are beautifully vulnerable and this is a shining moment of truth-telling straight from our soul. So, don’t miss it. Just lay there and listen.
